If you or your dog — or both — find it hard to be away from each other even for a short while, consider getting a pet camera. One of the most popular ones out there is the Furbo, which snowboarder Chloe Kim, dog experts, and dog lovers alike all swear by. Not only does it allow you to livestream HD video footage of your pet at home to your phone, it also shoots out treats and has two-way audio so you can speak assurances to your pup from afar. A barking sensor lets you know if something’s going on at home so you can put them at ease. As Kate Jaffe, a trends expert at Rover, puts it, “The Furbo lets you interact with your pet even when you’re far away, sharing treats, telling them they’re such a good girl, and snapping some photos, too.” Not only that, it makes an excellent gift for the dog lover in your life — and it also works for cats. Today it’s 30 percent off, or just $118, which is a small price to pay to quell a bit of separation anxiety, especially now that some folks are returning to the office.
